Location and contact

Kitchen closes at 3pm Monday - Friday & 3:30pm on weekends. Social Brew Cafe - something of an oasis of good food and drinks in Pyrmont. Where, let’s face it, the cafe options aren’t as abundant as one would like. Which isn’t to say we’d just head there out of necessity; Social Brew Cafe is a stylish spot, with great service, as well as that aforementioned delicious feed. In the main cafe space, dark walls and hanging lights give Social Brew an industrial, stylish feel. Splashes of red, as well as big windows that open up onto the verandah and trees outside however, give proceedings a welcoming, friendly, relaxed air. Speaking of the “verandah”, outside is where you’ll want to be when the weather’s

The chicken breast burger we ordered was delicious and so were the sweet potato fries!! The inside of the cafe looked beautiful but the toilet was horrible. You have to walk through a slippery kitchen. There were holes everywhere and it looked not done. The...More

Fantastic lamb tagine and a great glass of Shiraz to go with it. They have plenty of (dog-friendly) outdoor seating, which was nice and very comfortable. The whole food and drink menu all looked great and was fairly priced for the quality.

We went off the TripAdvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We were able to feed a picky child and have a choice of the interesting breakfast(mixed platter) or lunch menu(chicken burger with ginger). Good portions, great juices, friendly staff and interesting foodie combos!

Social brew is a great, small, trendy place with a nice selection of beverages, and really unique food options. I enjoyed the fish burger which was perfectly prepared and fresh. I will eat there again!

Accomodating staff, excellent service. Drinks and food came out quickly. As a non-coffee drinker - I can only comment on the exclamations of the other 4 people at the table that couldn’t speak more highly of the coffee. The meals were beyond delicious, fresh and...More

I was staying in Darling Harbour and googled breakfast places nearby. Had the most delicious smoked salmon and avocado flatbread and amazing coffee. So good that I took my husband back the next morning. Would definitely recommend. Staff were friendly and service was quick.

First cafe stop after traveling from in from the United States. For any tourists looking for an eclectic hidden gem for breakfast and coffee, this is the place. Highly recommend the truffle Bruschetta!

This is a busy coffee corner. Great food and great coffee, plenty of inside and outside seating. Very friendly and accommodating staff. As a suggestion, would book if you want to go out for your weekend breakfast.
